IFPE 2014 is the site of the 2014 International Fluid Power Summit, a meeting of leaders from fluid power associations across the globe. Show co-owner National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) is hosting the event.
The International Fluid Power Summit typically attracts key association leaders from countries including Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and the United Kingdom. The summit provides an opportunity for peer-to-peer discussion on a worldwide basis, with the aim of developing strategies that effectively address global challenges facing the fluid power industry.
“NFPA is pleased to host this important event; it’s an opportunity for fluid power professionals to work together to strengthen the worldwide fluid power industry,” states Eric Lanke, NFPA CEO.
“As a global gathering place for introduction of the newest products and technologies, IFPE is the ideal venue for this prestigious event, and we welcome their participation,” states Melissa Magestro, IFPE Show Director.
In conjunction with the summit, an International Fluid Power Statistics Committee meeting will be held at the show, with a focus on international statistical/data collection programs.
IFPE is the leading international exposition and technical conference for the fluid power, power transmission and motion control industries. The show runs March 4 to 8, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas USA. The summit will be held Thursday, March 6.
